It was. It was a very quiet area at one time. There were always the celebrities, but no one paid attention to them any more than anyone else because their kids were in our classes, and we didn’t think they were any different than we were.

My father was a Beverly Hills attorney to many of the old timers — Red Skelton, Broderick Crawford, Jack Lemmon, etc. It all seemed “normal” then. I mean there was always the star tours, but people didn’t swarm the neighborhood. The only time I remember that happening was during Halloween when the kids came from other cities to hopefully get some silver dollars and giant sized chocolate bars.
